    VL site has a new special download center, that is so slow it is down. I think that means it is like MSDN all the servers trying to sync or being swamped by those people with VL accounts!  
    Eopen just gave me the link for it, before it also slowed to a crawl Smiley

    It is listed as:
    Windows Vista - KMS

    Big Smile

    VA 2.0/KMS - Volume Activation 2.0/Key Management Service: this key will be used to enable a new service in your environment that will automatically activate Windows Vista computers. You must have a minimum of 25 Windows Vista computers connected together to use the KMS, and all computers will be required to check back to the central service twice per year to stay activated.

    do you know if the volume license key will only work on the business version? or do we get a choice when we have the disk with the other versions?

    It's the Utlimate version for Corporations. It's only available through VLM.

    are you able to download it yet? For me the page is super slow and only showing Office 2007 VL Media.

    It is odd too, it seems ot be MS Download Center style, instead of resumable MSDN style I would expect.  

    Anyone here have opinion on the new Volume License Downloads site?
